Question by Colt: do arrest warrants and outstanding warrants show up in background checks for work?
I had a background check for work and it goes thru their private company, but I was wondering if arrest warrants and outstandnig warrants show up in this check? im not worried, but my gf and i are debating about it, but she doesnt know much about the justice system. I thought background checks for work are just for charges that have been made or past convictions. not warrants.
Answer by WRG
In some states yes it will in others in won’t. Another thing that can effect it is how long the warrant has been outstanding.
